    SYNOPSIS: One of Europe's first professional women jockeys, 22-year-old Italian girl Miss Tiziana Sozzi, did well in the first two races of her career this week. On Monday, she rode second in a race in Milan and on Tuesday, at Rome's Capannella race course, she rode the favourite in the last race of the day.

    Her mount was Cinabro, valued at more than GBP600 sterling (about 1,800 dollars U.S.A.), weighed in at nine stone 13 pounds (63 kilos). The race -- one mile on the flat (1,600 metres)
    Miss Sozzi finished third in the field of thirteen riders--to the delight of the bookmakers as well as the crowds, for most people had backed her to win outright. But, said the experts, two places in the first two races was a good beginning for any jockey--man or woman.
